“One of the best parts of my job is getting to see each year’s Children’s Book Week poster come to life. Bryan Collier’s stunning image perfectly captures this year’s slogan, Reading is a Superpower. I hope young people see this image and feel inspired to discover their own superpowers. It was an honor to work with Bryan and the wonderful team at Scholastic!”
